Here's what I've been working on lately -- A Depression Era ensemble for an 18" doll. I crocheted a cloche and envelope purse that were so popular at that time. In the 1930's the lines of dresses became much more simple. The expense of the added material needed for gathered skirts, or lace and other such embellishments made them out of reach for most people. Yet, some very lovely styles were created in those hard days.
This ensemble is for sale in my Etsy Shop
I love using the reproduction prints that are being manufactured now. I repeated the fabric of the bodice in the hatband, and the jacket binding repeats the skirt fabric. Since I love textures, the waffle textured fabric of the jacket suited me just fine.
So, that is my latest project. . . Would you like to see some projects that others have been working on? Stop over and visit Shereen's Sew Crafty Friday and join in the fun.
